The diligent effort helped the heroes of faith to inherit the promises of God. Hebrews 6: 11-12 tells us to show the same diligence to the end: and that we should not be lazy but rather be imitators of those who through faith and patience inherited the promises.

And I like what Bishop Gospel Frempong Osei-Tutu, Ph.D. said here.

There is no promise in the bible for a lazy person whether natural or spiritual except poverty

I was reading the book of Luke and this caught my attention. Before the day of Pentecost, all of those the Lord dealt with, for the birth of Jesus Christ,and then Pentecost, were filled with the Holy Spirit.

Zechariah was told by the angel that his son would be filled with the Holy Spirit from birth. Luke 1:15. Mary was told by the angel that she was going to have a child, and she asked, how can this be, since I am a virgin? The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Luke 1:34-35.

When. Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:39-41. When Zechariah gave the child name, the Lord filled him with the Holy Spirit and prophesied. Luke 1:68-79.

A boy stood on a sidewalk waiting for a bus. A man walking by spotted the boy and gave him some gentle advice. “Son,” he said, “if you’re waiting for the bus you need to move to the street corner. That’s where the bus stops for passengers.”

“It’s OK”, said the boy. “I’ll just wait right here and the bus will stop for me.” The man repeated his advice, but the boy never moved. Just then, the bus appeared. Amazingly, the bus pulled over to where the boy stood and he hopped in. The man on the sidewalk stood speechless. The boy turned around in the doorway and said, Mister, I knew the bus would stop here, because the bus driver is my dad!”

When you’ve got a relationship with the bus driver, you don’t need a bus stop. If you have given your heart to the King of Kings, you’re in a royal family of unspeakable proportions.
Today I would like to remind you that when you know the Driver of your life you can take the bus of life anywhere. He will stop and pick you up where people think it is not possible. Whether some are thinking that you are not in the right frame of mind, or the right position or the right career to succeed but this will change when the success giver is your father and friend. Whether you are unemployed, broke, single or married, or childless or divorced, or widowed. What matters is that you know Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above what we can think or even imagine.

However, the BIG question is: “Is the driver your father? “Are you still His child? You can only get that privilege if He is your father.
He can bypass protocols because you are His child. He has done it before. He can do it AGAIN and AGAIN. And guss what? It does not matter what anybody feels or thinks.

Enjoy the ride with your Father.

God knows the best, He does the best, He gives the best, May He make you achieve the best in everything you do in life now and forever.

Again, this was sent to me by sister Caroline Kennedy.

This was sent to me by my sister in law Carline Kennedy. And I think you will like it.

“God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM”. This is what you are to say to the Israelites. I AM has sent me to you”. (Exodus 3:14)
The Great I AM
We serve a great and mighty God! He is the creator of the universe, the one who spoke the worlds into existence. He’s called the Great I AM, and He’s saying today, “I am everything you need. I am your strength. I am your wisdom. I am your protection. I am your provider. I am your way maker. I am your problem solver. I am your dream giver. I am your victory!”

David puts it this way in psalm 138, Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will bring me safely through. Your fist is clenched against my enemies. Your power will save me” Maybe you feel like David today. You’re surrounded by all kinds of difficulties. As we begin this new month change your focus to the Great I AM!

A Prayer for Today
“Father, I choose to focus on Your greatness today. Thank You for being the I AM- everything that I need to live the life of victory in Jesus’ name. Amen”. Have a blessed month

Nicodemus asked Jesus the question, "How can a man be born again when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?" This is found in John 3:4. This is the most important question to ask because the right answer is the key to eternal life. People have asked the same questions in different ways.

Matthew 19:16 "And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?"

Acts 2:37 "Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Acts 16:30 "And brought them out, and said, Sir, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved, and thy house."

To discuss the answer, I liked the way Bishop Gospel Frempong Osei-Tutu, Ph.D. puts it, and he said, I want to point out that religion and religious practices do not mean that a person is Born Again. Therefore, just undergoing some religious ordinances such as Water Baptism, partaking the Lord's supper, or following Christian disciplines like attending church meetings, praying, tithing, and reading your bible do not mean that you are Born Again. We know that Nicodemus was a Pharisee who practised religion but still needed to be Born Again. We also read about Cornelius who was a devout and God fearing man but who was not saved or Born Again (John 3:1-8, Acts 10:1-46, Luke 7:36-50). Other groups of people are trying to keep the Ten Commandment or the laws of God as a way of entering into the Kingdom of God. The bible tells us clearly that a man is not saved by good works or by keeping the law (Ephesians 2:5-9, Titus 3:1-5, Galatians 2:16-21).

The only access to the Kingdom of God is the New Birth. The New Birth is like a natural birth: Someone must do it, "give birth." In the New Birth, the Spirit is the one who gives birth to us. He could only do so if the penalty of our sins is paid. This is why Jesus came to identify Himself with us and went to the cross as our substitute to paid the prize. Jesus death, burial, and subsequent resurrection opened the door for God to save those who believe in Christ's work and receive Him. This is one area that New Birth is different from the natural birth. We played no part in the decision to be born naturally, but our permission or decision is required for the Spiritual birth.

John 1:12-13 says, "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

The decision is to receive Jesus as your Savior and Lord.

Luke 2 verses 40 and 52 speak of the growth of Jesus Christ: "And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him...And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man."

Jesus came into this World, not only to set us free from our sins, but to also set an example how we should live and grow among the newly bornagain believers and the unbelievers. Because if we'll follow the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, others will come to give their lives to Christ even without us talking to them.

And growth is so important to us as christians, that we need to keep reminding ourselves all of the time. I liked the way Bishop Gospel Frempong Osei-Tutu, Ph.D. puts it here about Jesus. Jesus grew physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. I believed the Holy Spirit penned this down for us to know the areas at which we are to grow. Unfortunately, to many people growth has been limited to physical and mental growth and nothing about social and spiritual growth. The outcome is that there are so many relational problems because people lack social skills. In the same way, spiritual growth is no longer a subject of emphasis even among Christians, though we agree that Jesus commissioned us to make disciples (bring converts into maturity)

Good afternoon friends. I strongly believed that God created us for a purpose. To grow and take respondsibilities of all He had planed for each of us. He did not bring us into the World just for decorations, but rather to carry out plans that He destined for us.

I'll again, mention something here by this writer, which is very important, and it has to do with growth, by Bishop Gospel Frempong Osei-Tutu, Ph.D. And I quote: In elementary biology, we learn that a primary characteristic of living things is growth. Yes!  This law of life is growth. God made growth a critical ingredient of our existence. Growth is not only the law of life but also the wonder of life. Growth brings the best out of a living thing. Growth turns a fetus into a human being and a caterpillar into a butterfly. Growth also unleashes a person's potentials and abilities. Our stability depends on growth. Growth is always God's ideal or ultimate aim for us. He speaks to us about increase, add, multiply and abound. He has called us to an abundant life; He wants us to experience the fullness of His blessings and His grace. He wants us to grow.

Brothers and sisters, as we entered 2018, let us do everything we can in our strength and the Power of God Almighty to be mature. As brother Mike stated in his statement, lets us move foward with this gospel of Jesus Christ. While we're depending on God, I want you and I to know that we have to play our part. When we do what He expects us to do, then He'll come to help. Lets ask the Lord to teach us how to grow,  so that we'll engoy all of the bebefits He has for us.

While reading this morning, I thought of this great writer, Bishop Gospel Frempong Osei-Tutu, Ph.D. and I quote: I have discovered that after a person's salvation, the most important subject and pursuit is spiritual growth. Just as a baby is born with the potential to become an adult and become independent and productive, just as they have both creative and innovative abilities, so also is a person born of God. We have the potential to be filled with all the fullness of God and the potential to do what Christ did and even greater things then He did. However, the secret is in growth. When we grow, we develope and change. When we grow, we will become what He wants us to become and we will be able to do what God wants us to do.

"He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. " John 1:11

Knock, knock! Who is there? "My name is Joseph, I'm here with my  wife Mary! She is in labor and about to give birth to the Savior , do you have a room for the Savior?"

"Sorry, I don't have room for the Savior. " 

There's room for everyone else but no room for the Savior. How many doors did Joseph and Mary knock on? We do not know but every one of them had no room for the Savior! Their houses were packed to the full with all kinds of human beings but no room for the Savior. 

The Son of God was coming into the world but no one had a room for Him. There's no room for the Maker of heaven and earth. 

It's that time of the year again when the birth of Christ is celebrated universally. It's most likely He was born some other time possibly spring because of the Shepherds who were out in the  night tending their flocks but it's great to agree on a day to celebrate the birth of Christ the Savior and LORD! 

Over 2000 years ago it was the birth of Christ and no one had a room for Him, hence He was born in a Manger. Today, we celebrate His birth but do you have room for the Savior in your heart, life, home, Church and business?

It's sad how many are celebrating Christmas without Christ in their lives! They have room for Santa, they have room for Christmas trees and the lights but no room for the True Vine, no room for the Light of the world. There's room for all kinds of gifts but no room for the best gift ever given by God, Christ the Messiah!

There's room for all kinds of food and drinks but no room for the Bread of life. 

Room for all kinds of friends but no room for the LORD !

Today even right now, the Savior is standing at the door of your heart knocking,  seeking a lifelong relationship with you, do you have room for Him? Will you let Him in?

It is very necessary for every Christian to grow Spiritually most especially when we as humans're becoming so wicked to the point that no one can imagine. I liked the way Bishop Gospel Frempong Osei-Tutu puts it, and I quote: Spiritual growth is necessary to each Christian. Just like a baby ought to grow into a productive adult capable of making valuable contribution to this world, so does every Christian need to grow to be productive in the Kingdom of God. If we desire to access God's blessings! We are Born Again with the nature of God, but it is our responsibility to develop this nature in us. Our potential to live, overcome, minister, pray, and win like Jesus is only actualized through Spiritual growth. When we grow Spiritually, we increase in our faith, love, patience, wisdom, power, knowledge, glory, and every virtue that Christ possesses.
